One Crucial Element To Good Marital Communication Ep 101

One Crucial Element To Good Marital Communication | Marriage Coach

 

>

Try explaining something you don’t understand; you can’t do it without laughing or wanting to cry.

Let me explain.

You’re in a funk, but you’re not sure why; I mean, life is going really well right now; you should be partying like it’s 1999!

You can’t explain it to your spouse, so you withdraw, which could be understood through their lenses as you’re mad at them for doing something wrong.

Nothing gets resolved, and you continue to distance yourselves to avoid feeling awful.

This is not good communication, but it’s what happens in the lives of many couples.

What do you do about this problem? Learning to communicate well is a start, but you need to start practicing something else before communicating well.

First, I want to tell you to relax. This is going to feel so much better than trying to explain the unexplainable to your spouse!

This crucial step starts with you, like most things we do here in AwakenYou in your marriage, so tune into this week’s episode, which is all about the One Crucial Element To Good Marital Communication.

How To Set & Achieve Your Relationship Goals Ep 100

How To Set & Achieve Your Relationship Goals | Marriage Coach

 

 

Sure, you can ask Google how to set relationship goals, and you will get all sorts of information; try it!

Maybe you even take a stab at one or two of the suggestions you discover.

You might quickly discover the Google suggestion felt awful and awkward, and your spouse didn’t respond as you hoped.

Maybe you’ve already given these tactics a go, and your new year healthy eating goals lasted longer than a repeat of a tactic that left you feeling less than loved and desired.

Why are relationship goals so difficult?

My simple answer is this: we’re talking about matters of the heart.

When it comes to matters of the heart, most of us will go to extremes to protect our hearts from getting hurt.

But, on this week’s AwakenYou in your marriage episode…

EPISODE 100, BTW!!!!! 🥳

I am going to help you start taking steps toward the goal of creating a marriage that has your heart asking for more.

Why You Want To Forgive Ep 97

Why You Need To Forgive Ep 97 | Marriage Coach

<

What they did hurt.

Disappointment, frustration, resentment.

They all lead to anger, bitterness, and disconnection.

Maybe it’s time.

To forgive.

I know; it seems like forgiving is giving in.

It seems like it’s telling them that what they did was ok.

It seems like we’re telling them they don’t need to change.

Forgiveness is none of that.

Forgiveness is about freedom.

Your freedom.

If someone has hurt you and you can’t seem to shake it, maybe you’ve been holding on to it for what feels like a lifetime, then it’s time to let it go.

Tune into this week’s episode about extending forgiveness and find out why along with a four-step process you can use as a guide to begin.

One Essential Key To Finding Happiness In Your Marriage Ep 96

One Essential Key To Finding Happiness In Your Marriage | Marriage Coach

 

That one thing is learning how to feel, identify, understand, process and then regulate your emotions.

Probably not the magic solution you were hoping for, huh?

If you think feeling your emotions is for wimps or it might feel too painful, then can I ask you a question?

Why do you think feeling your emotions is for wimps? 

Why do you think it will be too painful?

Those are entirely different thoughts that two people might think, yet they are contradictory, wouldn’t you say?

What if you discovered that opening up and sharing what you are feeling is quite sexy and that feeling the pain and letting it out was cathartic?

Both are true, and if you want to experience them in your own life and your love relationship, this week’s episode is for you

You will discover the one essential key to finding happiness in your marriage. This key will help you with every single problem you can imagine when it comes to an intimate relationship.

In this Marriage Masterclass, I am going to share: 

  • What I see to be the most important thing you can work on to create a marriage that feels like something you want to nurture and grow, instead of something that makes you feel less than valuable 
  • How this one thing came to affect your marriage the way it does
  • Why these things are in your life and what their purpose is 
  • The process to change this one dynamic and the impact it will have on your marriage

Creating Healthy Marital Expectations Ep 95

Creating Healthy Expectations In Your Marriage | Marriage Coach

<

 

When you get married, you have all sorts of expectations about what your spouse will or won’t do.

First, there are all those lovely things they did when you were dating that you expect them to keep doing.

Then there are those things you assumed they would do, inherited beliefs from the household you grew up in.

And then there are the things you imagined they absolutely wouldn’t do.

There are many problems with these expectations in your marriage, but the biggest problem is that they are tearing your marriage apart.

Look, I’m not blaming you; I’m right there with you, and you know who else is?

Your spouse!

Yep, they also have expectations around what YOU will and won’t do.

With the holidays coming up and all of the expectations filling the air, this episode drops with excellent timing.

In this week’s episode about Creating Healthy Expectations, you will find out: 

  • what expectations are
  • the problem with unmet expectations
  • how to deal with your expectations so that you can create joy instead of resentment in your marriage this holiday season

Finding The Gifts Of Your MarriageMarriage Commitment Leaks & How They're Destroying Your Marriage | Marriage Coach
 

Leaks in your marriage commitment often go unnoticed.

  • An extra hour at work.
  • A little extra time spent at that volunteer event.
  • Bringing the kids to that last-minute event even though you had a date night planned.
  • That extra cardio session at the gym.
  • That conversation with that co-worker of the opposite sex that really gets you.

Over time, these little leaks add up to a neglected marriage where the damage seems so overwhelming that you have no idea where to start your repair project.
